Overnight Open Thread (10-4-2015)

Quote of the Day I

Even a cat may look at a king. But apparently, males should keep their eyes averted at all times, in a proper show of subservience.

-- Glenn Reynolds on how even looking at a women without her consent is considered sexual assault on some campuses

Quote of the Day II

In the imagined "gun-free zone," even the most inept miscreant with a gun is king.

-- WeaponsMan

Quote of the Day III

A world of ZZ Top tribute bands, minus the music and girls. Bet the kids can't wait.

-- Tim Blair on what a world 'in the light of Islam' means

Quote of the Day IV

No gays, but fleet-footed pre-op transsexuals in abundance? Odd place, Iran.

-- Ian Tuttle on the revelation that 8 members of Iranian Women's Soccer Team are actually men

Quote of the Day V - More Mush From The Wimp Edition

Unless we work together to defeat the ideas that drive different communities in a country like Iraq into conflict, any order that our militaries can impose will be temporary ... I believe in my core that repression cannot forge the social cohesion for nations to succeed ... You can jail your opponents, but you can't imprison ideas.

-- Obama trying to tiptoe around Islamism as a fundamental cause of the current Mideast violence

Quote of the Day VI

I'm urged to ask those who created this situation: do you at least realize now what you've done? ... I'd like to tell those who engage in this: Gentlemen, the people you are dealing with are cruel but they are not dumb. They are as smart as you are. So, it's a big question: who's playing who here?

-- Putin criticizing US involvement in the Middle East

What Really Happened During the 2013 Nairobi Westgate Mall Attack

Most of what you heard at the time turns out to be wrong.

It turns out, what happened in September, 2013, is not what we've been told. The official line goes something like this: that up to a dozen armed jihadis attacked, killed hundreds, holed up with dozens of hostages and blew the place up, and were taken out in a determined assault by Nairobi SWAT.

In fact there were only four lightly armed jihadis and the police assault was a complete cock-up that took place way too late to save anyone. It was the actions of a few concealed weapon carriers and brave policemen who immediately engaged the gunmen that brought the attack to an end.

While the police hesitated, like the cops at the Columbine, Colorado school shooting in the USA, individual non-police gun carriers and a few bold individual policemen entered the mall in pursuit of the four gunmen. These guys are the ones you see saving those who were saved.

...When the Kenyan police and army finally attacked many hours later, they did it by an uncoordinated strike through separate entrances, and when they two forces met, they engaged each other. After that, the elite police SWAT-like unit took their casualties and went home, and the Army and other police proceeded to trash the place.

Bon Jovi vs. Roger Waters

Advantage: Bon Jovi who seems to be a mensch. Waters by comparison is an Jew-hating bully.

Bon Jovi was going to play a concert in the Twin Cities the following Saturday night. The man explained that there was a retarded boy in the Twin Cities-sorry, I honestly don't know the current euphemism-with whom Bon Jovi had a big brother relationship, and whenever he was in Minnesota he made time to spend with the boy. They thought it would be fun to go boating on the St. Croix. So, could Mr. Bon Jovi rent their boat for the following Sunday? Our personnel director and her husband said that they would be happy to lend their boat for free, if they could come along.

The following Sunday, at a time when most rock stars of that era (or any other) would have been sleeping off a night of excess, Jon Bon Jovi, his assistant and the young boy met with my friend and her husband at the marina, and enjoyed an afternoon of boating on the river. That's when the photo was taken. There is nothing unique about Minnesota: I assume that for several decades, Bon Jovi has done similar good deeds around the country with zero publicity. So, as you can imagine, I have long had a good opinion of Jon Bon Jovi.

Fast forward to 2015. While many of his rock and roll contemporaries have succumbed to dissipation and in some cases are six feet under, Bon Jovi is still performing. He scheduled a concert in Tel Aviv, which drew the wrath of Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, who is now an obsessive anti-Israel activist and, in my opinion, an anti-Semite. Whenever a high-profile entertainer undertakes to perform in Israel, Waters weighs in, in bullying fashion.
Jon Bon Jovi kicked off his band's first-ever performance in Israel Saturday evening by telling 50,000 cheering Israelis "I've waited a long time for this!"
A few songs into the show, he underlined his empathy with Israel by introducing a new song called "We Don't Run," released earlier this summer, with the comment: "This should be the fight song for Tel Aviv."
And later in the performance, the New Jersey-born rocker name-checked his keyboard player, the Jewish musician David Bryan (Rashbaum), by saying that "your father would be proud of you" for being in Israel pounding the piano.

Slate: The ALA's Banned Books Week Is a Crock

Even Slate is calling out the American Library Association's annual Banned Book Week as BS. The ALA considers a parent merely complaining about a book's inclusion on a mandatory school reading list as a 'banning'. But of course they ignore the real actual banning of works on campuses due to political correctness:

Yet what intrigues me about Banned Books Week publicity, and the likely political agenda over at ALA headquarters, is not what it features but what it excludes. For there is, in fact, an ongoing effort to ban books in America in 2015-that is, to exclude them from classroom reading lists, if not prevent their publication and sale - but it is taking place not on school boards in our nation's rural communities but on college campuses in some of the most progressive and sophisticated communities in the United States. At Columbia University in Manhattan, for example, Ovid's Metamorpheses has been excluded from the syllabus because of objections about sexual violence and replaced with-irony alert!-Toni Morrison's Song of Solomon. Rutgers is considering the attachment of required "trigger warnings" for The Great Gatsby and Huckleberry Finn, and based on individual complaints, innumerable other colleges and universities are pondering the future of such works as Mrs. Dalloway or The Merchant of Venice on student reading lists.

VW Not The Only Car Manufacturer Gaming Emissions Testing

Four major car manufacturers were dragged into the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal last night after Government-funded research revealed that their engines are emitting toxic fumes at up to seven times the legal limit.

British researchers tested hundreds of new diesel cars on UK roads and found that popular brands including BMW, Ford, Mazda and Mercedes, as well as Volkswagen and Audi, all emitted levels of nitrogen oxides (NOx) far higher than the limits required to pass European tests.

Last night, the researchers said the huge discrepancy between real-world diesel emissions and the legal limits set by the European Commission was 'extremely concerning' - and suggested that Volkswagen was not alone in finding ways to pass laboratory tests.

Makes you wonder if any diesel car manufacturers were able to meet the new stringent NOx requirements. This story suggests not.

No, he doesn't believe that in his core.

His core allows Kim Davis and the YouTube Benghazi culprit to be jailed and the military that were discharged from service for beating the shit out of an Afghani pedo rapist for keeping a little boy chained to his bed. That's his core.

As for Roger Waters, I think it's fair to call him the Bobby Fischer of rock music. Brilliant but so ridonkulously bigoted and arrogant he's not worth knowing. I believe I've read/heard that even the other members of Pink Floyd want nothing to do with him any more.

"At least,' she corrected herself on second thoughts, "a beautiful cravat, I should have said - no, a belt, I mean - I beg your pardon!" she added in dismay, for Humpty Dumpty looked thoroughly offended, and she began to wish she hadn't chosen that subject. "If only I knew," she thought to herself, "which was neck and which was waist!"

One time Moron, Berserkers Diamond Head Division, said as much the same. Berserkers has played with him and says he is a professional and consummate musician. What happened to Berserkers anyway?

Bon Jovi has a few good songs. Bad Medicine, I actually like. The one he and Ritchie Sambora did with Jennifer Nettles --- the Who Says You Can't Go Home song --- I liked too. I liked It's My Life, but Sambora went and quit. So I don't know now about Bon Jovi.

109 Nature's little gender bender hiccups can actually make sex determination a complicated mess in the marginal cases. I remember some case of a "female" athlete, maybe a runner, I can't remember, who blew all the other women away. There was some test they were using and "her" case ran into a flaw in that test.

There's something about the "SRY" gene, which is the one of the Y chromosome, that if normal, is what stars the masculinizing process. Things can get screwed up with that in all sorts of ways, which makes for all the crazy gender bender cases. Actually pinning it down is pretty complicated in the marginal cases.

123 Not sure if the whitewashing is true...but this is the photo that Drudge linked to (I think) while we all waited for The Name. I am pretty sure the link on Drudge was to CNN and the photo...but have no idea which version I first saw. You would think someone could link it if true and not photoshopped (I mean, the photo got rid of his moles, too. The term "Spotted Dick" comes to mind, which is a freaky name for a British pudding).

What is interesting is the lack of his mother. One photo of her. One screen-captured conversation on social media re: guns. No reference, or rare, that she is black or biracial.

It seems to me that it should not matter what race you are if you are a satanic barbarian killing innocent people in a school or a church or wherever (speaking of innocent people in Syria, twelve more Christians were beheaded refusing to submit to islame).

What interests me more is his social media, well-scrubbed and probably the reason for the abnormal delay in releasing his name. It was not to notify his parents first, as what stopped them from the name when Gabby was shot and the media spewed a Tea Party connection? Of course they globbed on to this guy's supposedly being a Republican when he is registered as an Independent in Oregon.

The delay of name, the mom missing information, the lack of social media and, supposedly, doctored crap online plus the school being where one of the Paris train heroes attended do all ad up to me wearing tinfoil. People died if they were Christian. Did Otyrant speak to that...oh, and he is not welcome in that town per the editor of the paper. xoxo

One of my friends remarried a few years ago. He and his new wife are now in their late 50's. She is still pretty attractive (read that....pretty stacked), and she was probably pretty hot 30 years ago. She was working as a waitress with a small child from her first marriage (divorced) and John Cougar Mellencamp was touring, and stopped to eat in her restaurant, and wanted her to travel with him on tour (ahem).
Well, she did turn him down, but to her it was a big joke.

She was working as a waitress with a small child from her first marriage (divorced) and John Cougar Mellencamp was touring, and stopped to eat in her restaurant, and wanted her to travel with him on tour (ahem).
Well, she did turn him down, but to her it was a big joke.

And he was short, too. I think that was the deal breaker.
#######

I heard he was doing Christy Brinkley these days.
Step down, way down, for her.

179 ATM, prob with the Eagles as I understand it is that they're sue-happy and hypersensitive to anything that even looks like any sort of infringement on them. Besides their version of "Best of My Love," there was a disco song by the Emotions with that title, and it actually IMHO sounded a tiny, tiny bit like the Eagles version. Not sure which came out first, but it wouldn't surprise me if the Eagles considered suing the Emotions over that.

"Brown Eyed Girl" was perfect for Top 40 radio, hence it gets played to death on oldies stations now. Morrison is at his best on longer songs, usually too long for Top 40 radio, and album-oriented rock stations are almost extinct.

I have yet to hear Joel really mouth off about politics, and even when he endorsed Obama in 2008, he made sure to say at the end of it all, "of course I could be wrong."

Also, if you listen to some of his spoken-word group interview that is on the 4th disc of his box set "The Billy Joel Collection," when he talks about Vietnam, the only politician he made fun of was Johnson. Joel said, when LBJ resigned: "'I come to you tonight with a heavy heart.' Yeah, Lyndon, and big ears."

If you ever get to hear David Benoit, live on stage, you'll hope n' pray that he rocks out the Linus n' Lucy Suite on the grand piano.

Borders on piano abuse, but he absolutely and (seemingly contradictory, but such is his talent), beats those tunes into sublime submission, makes 'em his bitch.

And to the absolute delight of the audience, I hasten to add.

He'll start out with playing it straight, and it's amazingly like hearing the original, played lovingly and with great respect. But then the intensity......dials up, and it's time to fasten your seat belts.

Worth the price if he's in your area.

Comcast being hacked shouldn't affect your Mac in any way, and you really don't need an antivirus for OS X, i've never used one for mine and never had any problems and i go to some pretty sketchy sites. If you just feel better having one you can get Bit Defender for free from the App Store.

248 So, in random news of the weird, the fiancee and I went to Whole Paycheck (in Cupertino, if you care). And their twice-baked prosciutto potatoes weren't ridiculously overpriced -- they were on sale as just wildly overpriced. So I decided to get one. I went back to produce to "tag back" and let her know of the sale. When I got there, she was somewhat upset because her truncated shopping cart had gone missing with a couple of her reusable bags. Since she hadn't left the produce section, I did a quick scan and moved onward through the store. She had had a Harris Teeter bag, which was likely the only one in Cupertino (and probably one of three in the state).




When I got back to the produce section, there was no fiancee to be found. I did another scan of the store to find the fiancee, and found her in the produce section -- she had done her own scan of the entire store when I expected her to be in the produce section and had recently returned.



We had some discussion, and I gave her the stuff I wanted to buy and went out to the car to get more reusable bags and a new cart. We can now all say this together: "When I got back to the produce section, there was no fiancee to be found. I did another scan of the store to find the fiancee, and found her in the produce section -- she had done her own scan of the entire store when I expected her to be in the produce section and had recently returned."



At this point, I identified a similar truncated cart that had an "MIT/Sloan Management" bag laying in it that hadn't moved since the first time I'd scanned the produce section [auditor]. We both agree that we have more shopping to do, and we wander off to do this. I'm trying to think of something to eat beyond the twice-baked spud and visit the meat counter, cold counter, and hot counter (while visiting cheeses to snarf a bunch of overpriced gouda samples....mmm, mmm -- if only it were half as pricey -- maybe I should sample a bit more.



Then I decide to find the fiancee and see where we are. We can all sing this together: "When I got back to the produce section, there was no fiancee to be found. I did another scan of the store to find the fiancee, and found here in the produce COLD section -- she had done her own scan of the entire store when I expected her to be in the produce section and had recently returned MOVED-ON."



So, then, we go to check out. After the fiancee checks out, I ask if she ever checked lost-and-found. Then I schlep the stuff to the car while she circles back to check.




When she shows up with the Harris Teeter bags, I ask if she ever told the lost-and-found about the MIT/Sloan bag, and she hadn't -- so I went in and made sure that went to l+f as well.



I feel like I put 3 and 3 and 3 together and got 27.....but it was all to unscramble a bunch of thoughtlessness regarding a couple of $1 bags.

HC Jr seemed like a pretty cool guy to me. His sister lived in the same town where the radio station I worked at, and he would just pop by when he was in town unannounced.

The guys in Hootie and The Blowfish were also pretty good guys. They came by the radio station and sat around the lobby shooting the shit with the staff the whole afternoon of their concert. They finally left about an hour before the concert started. Darrius Rucker was not there, he had to go to see a doctor.

Aaron Neville was about the nicest guy in the world, and if you didn't know who he was, you would have thought he was a warehouse employee. He also had some huge damn arms.

The guys that had lost it and were now in a mini comeback were all great to work with. We used to do a summer concert series at a local high school stadium, (it held about 20K), and some of those guys were just fine with sharing a field house lockerroom with a couple of other bands. They didn't bitch that the place didn't have very many amenities, they knew that about 10K people were outside waiting to hear them, and that is all they now cared about.

Bands/performers don't really understand that they have about 7-8 years to make their hay. After that, they start having less and less appeal as the age group that made them "popular" grows older and moves on to other things.

It's sad. When I think of how much money Washington has wasted on nothing, absolutely shit to show for trillions and trillions, and we can't even get to LEO.

Actually, worse. In hacking contests at events like DEFCON, the Mac target system is nearly always the first to fall under outside control.

The main issue for malware makers is where the money is. If you're in the business of renting out a botnet for DDoS attacks, sheer numbers are going to favor building it from Windows PCs.

There is reason why Microsoft finally gave up and made updates mandatory on the consumer versions of Windows 10. The other versions still give you control options (the dividing line is whether the version supports joining a server domain) but the rank and file home users are just never going to do the right thing.

The way I look at it is that it's an instant signifier as to how fucked-up-in-the-head a region is. If you ban single-use plastic bags, you instantly buy-in to a doubling or tripling of cases of food poisoning -- which mostly target the very young or the very old. This is in response to a mostly theoretical threat to marine life or of landfill overuse. So when you're ready to kill 20 kids by diarrhea in a provable way to maybe save a sea-turtle from choking on a plastic bag.....your region must be seriously messed-up.

331 That Bon Jovi story made me tear up! Wow, good for Jon and the band. With his being an Obama-bot this happily surprised me... Lady Gaga, also an Obama-bot, also performed in Israel recently.

BTW: as a kid, my older sister was IN LOVE with Bon Jovi and got to go to his concert and everything -- she had a lifesize poster of Jon on the door of the room we shared and she plastered pics of them all over our walls -- Tiger Beat, Teen Beat etc magazines. I was only 7 or 8 but I wanted to be just like my older, cool teen sister so I loved Bon Jovi, too. Sister said, "Jon, Richie, and Tico are mine, you can have anyone else." I chose David Bryan, cool '80s perm and all! I had no idea he was Jewish, so that's really great that he got to perform in Jerusalem.

I don't know what your particular situation was but oftentimes returned mails aren't even coming from your computer. It's easy for anyone to attach your email address as the "From" and "Reply To" addresses, even though the mail isn't coming from your mail server. Other servers turn it around and it comes to you.

I'm not saying that was your problem but it does happen a lot (since it's so easy) and requires no hacking of any sort, just your email address and a name (preferably yours, to them) to attach onto it to make it look like it was sent from you. Your name and address get on a list and ... boom!

342 289 Ashley Judd's, any other bad or good bands that you want to spill about? I always wondered about Billy Squire. He was supposed to be a total dick as a person, but I liked him as a musician. And what about the David Lee Roth vs Eddie feud? I hate believing it, but I think it was all Eddie. Even SammyH dislikes Eddie. And everyone like Sammy.
Posted by: L, Elle at October 05, 2015 12:54 AM (dDUXP)


Never got around Billy Squire, and Van Halen never came to town when I was working, so I don't know much about them. However, everyone says Sammy Haggar is a great guy, and if my memory is right, he did a couple of call in interviews, and then a week later, the record company sent us some "shoutouts" that he did for the station.

Styx, everyone in the band hated Dennis DeYoung with the fire of a 1000 suns. One of the band members banged the receptionist while they were in town, and he just ragged on DeYoung the whole time he was at the station waiting to "go to lunch" with her.

Michael Bolton was a dick of the first degree. He had a bunch of roadies that were chosen because they could crush a softball. When they would come to town, they would challenge a local station to a softball game. They had very specific instructions on the field dimensions, especially the outfield walls. The first couple of innings would be a regular game, but in the 2nd inning, they would break out some titanium bats, and their long fly balls that dropped short of the outfield walls then started flying over those walls. So the game went from 2-1, to 22-2 real quick as all of his fans cooed and awed that they humiliated the radio station like that. Of course, the radio station was playing with gloves and bats borrowed from somebody since a lot of radio people tend not to be athletes.

But, one station found out about what they were doing, and they got several titanium bats. And, they got some ringers to come play. Same thing as always, Bolton's team takes a 10-1 lead, and they say well, this is the last inning, the radio station then pulls out their bats and starts hitting dinger after dinger. They pull ahead 12-10 after the bottom of the inning. Bolton goes ballistic and says "we can play another inning", they keep playing. At the bottom of the inning, Bolton's team is still down, so now the cocksucker has his team bat in the top of the inning, they get a one run lead, then he says "sorry, we have to go right now because we are late for soundcheck". So Bolton's team "wins" the game and kept their "unbeaten" streak that they would crow about when issuing the challenge to radio stations.

After that, most radio stations passed on playing his softball team. And his music.

The guys from Aerosmith were pretty cool, but Tyler wasn't with them at the appearance, and the vibe from them was that they were okay with that.

Bruce Hornsby, he was an okay guy.

Goo Goo Dolls, dicks.

ZZTop, pretty cool guys.

I really didn't like hanging around the bands because after dealing with a lot of them, you really stopped giving a shit about being around them.

377 Cannot see why the gun grabbers won't follow this simple path to getting rid of that pesky 2nd Amendment:


The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress.

I mean, the only have to get 38 of the 50 states to approve it. I mean, Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kansas, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Arizona, Mississippi, Texas, Georgia, Indiana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Utah, Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri, West Virginia and Iowa probably won't, but they can find 38 states that will.

Right?

I mean, Pennsylvannia, Florida, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Maine, New Mexico, and Ohio are just begging to pass this new amendment. Right?

BTW, have you messed with them and let them bag and then say "Wait, I'll just unbag and take it out in the cart. Refund my bag tax!" Even if they don't, you just shoved a sabot in the gears. Never pass up that opportunity. The FSA behind you will go nuts waiting to check out.

He was "solo" in the mid 80's to early to mid 90's. It was "Bruce Hornsby and the Range".

After that, he started filling in with the Dead after the death of their keyboardist.

Yeah, Perry was really a nice guy, but I never really liked hanging around most of the bands. Me in a suit being busy as hell didn't really lend to wanting to be in fan boy mode. Especially since 4 other people in the previous 24 months had been in my job, and the station owner didn't really like the GM hanging out with record company people. I mostly introduced myself, welcomed them to the station, then went to meetings. Some would stop by on their way out and thank me for letting them be on the air or playing their songs, and Perry was one of those.

The thing is, Drudge was also carrying the story on an Infowars link. Now, I didn't go to the Drudge link (cuz infowars, duh) but I did read the Treehouse piece. Aaaaand I did notice no link to CNN video but his claim was pretty specific.

Fuckity. You can't trust anyone, hardly. Also, I just checked and while Gateway has backed off the CNN claim including CNN's denial, Conservative Treehouse has not yet backed off.

Apart from the bad writing, I wonder what she's talking about. The laws on trafficking in human body parts are being ignored, clinics are not being closed because of it. So from the author's perspective, that would be an improvement.

435 Bill Nye is right about fertilized cells not attaching. That is science. Bill is right that microscopes allow us to see sperm bump against the egg. That is science. Everything after that is opinion based in his view of politics.

However, in the spirit of being fact based, I would present Bill with a fact and a scientific question. The constitution states that "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Therefore, are fertilized eggs that have attached alive? And, if so, what is their genus and species?

I ask because the right to abortion in a political concept created by the courts, as opposed the right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" which is expressed in our Declaration. A possible disqualification of the right to Life, which has presides to all other rights because how can you have other rights and not be alive, would be if you said that the cells are not, in fact, "men."

I find that argument to be disingenuous though, in light of the fact that the genus and species are the qualifier of type for all other life forms despite there level of development. (For example, the metamorphic changes of some insects, fishes, amphibians, molluscs, crustaceans, cnidarians, echinoderms and tunicates considering the consistency of genus and species as defined by DNA from fertilization to death.)
